2017 Albuquerque Gathering Who is making the trip?

Matchbox Lovin' Mailman!
My wife April and I will be driving out on Thursday morning. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

This is a fun and fabulous event for diecast collectors of all brands; Jeff Koch's in-room trading is evidence of this!

Jim Gallegos, his family, local Albuquerque collectors, and Mattel put together an awesome and informative weekend.

This is my 11th year in a row; my "midsummer Matchbox Christmas!"

So please check in if you are joining us.

*** Also, what are you bringing to sell? What types of models are you looking to purchase? ***

I will be there.

What am I bringing to sell? All sorts of 1/64. I may even bring Matchbox ...

I'll be arriving Thursday afternoon sometime, looking forward to seeing everyone again. Looking for the usual odd stuff, trucks and construction. I'm thinking of bringing some rare regular wheels, I don't know, space is always a premium in the carry-ons. I did see this yesterday on the Lamley blog, pic by Jim G, there's more there as well.

I will be there again this year. My flight gets in Thursday morning, then I think I'll go do some touristy things around town. B)

I think I'll bring some rare regular wheels stuff, too. This gathering is a place where people will recognize a rare model rather than thinking its just another toy. :blink:

If anyone has an extra 2016 Disney Matchbox Bus they'd like to see go to a good home, please bring it along!

I will be there too for the second time.

Also, I don't have a table, but I really want the Dealer model this year. If somebody has a spare one for a fair price , please let me know.
